1995-07-04 Mbulelo Botile w pts 12 Sammy Stewart, Carousel Resort, Hammanskraal, South Africa - IBF. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 119-109, 118-110, 118-110. Looking to take the speedy Stewart (117) out with one punch proved to be a mistake and Botile (117¾) chased the California-based Liberian all night to no avail, in what turned out to be an uninspiring contest. It must be said, however, that while Stewart never looked like getting caught he also never looked like winning, spending all of his time avoiding the punches coming his way and no time at all acting like a genuine challenger.
